I just joined the Pyrex Collective II and figured I should jump in and introduce myself. I am Cara-Mia, a twenty-six-year-old living in southern California - as in a few miles away from the Mexican border. Last month, I became engaged and have since gone into nesting-mode, looking at items for the future home (er, apartment) my fiance and I will have together when I join him up in San Diego after we get married in February.

Anyway, since I am in nesting-mode, these dishes stood out to me at a thrift store in Arizona.

Cute vintage Pyrex! My mother has a Colonial Mist Pyrex collection that she received over thirty years ago, so I definitely grew up using Pyrex. I thought it would be fun to have some of my own, especially in a color that I plan to really use in my own kitchen.

I went online to see what else was available in this print, and was pleased to find so many cute things! It didn't take long to get hooked. (Unfortunately, I do not live near any good thrift shops, so most of my shopping will be done on Ebay. I've already ordered some cute pink Pyrex pieces that I will also have to make a post about.)

Well, that's enough for now. It's nice to meet you all, I've been enjoying your posts.
